Code:
Full Product Name: Avast Free Antivirus
Version: 2017 (latest updateable version)
Developers Website: Avast | Download Free Antivirus for PC, Mac & Android
Special Testing Requirements (Optional): Poisoned documents (script based) ransomware
According to Avast's CTO (concern)/CEO(consumer division) Ondrej (VLK) their new behavioral blocker is very effective against ransomware. So I am curious how well file shield's "scan when opening OLE documents" and the new (AVG-based) behavioral blocker protect against this ransomware.

Yes i want to see a test against Windows 10 native security.

Part 1

- SUA with UAC At max
- Smartscreen set to warn or block
- allow softwares from Appstore only
- malware must be downloaded in the test system, not imported from other sources (that must be shown during the test).
- click "no" to any prompts.

Part 2

Using this reg tweak (implemented on Admin Account)

Blocking Unsigned Elevation :
90% of malware are unsigned and will request an elevation from UAC, this trick will block the request.
Create a registry file with this lines :

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"ValidateAdminCodeSignatures"=dword:00000001
If correctly implemented, the next unsigned process/program; won't be allow to execute, and you will have a error box.
To re-enabled unsigned elevation , use the same line but with "dword:00000000"
Bump !

i guess if someone do this test , the audience will realize that the needs of security softs will be greatly reduced :p

anyone have any recent reviews they've done or found on symantec endpoint protection (SEP) ?
i think i have option of installing it on my home laptop but it will not be centrally managed i think? (outside company network obviously, and not company laptop, so im guessing it'll be not centrally managed version...)

Depend how you install it, in your case it would surely be the unmanaged method, which is weaker in term of features.

From what i've googled around to see, it uses a dedicated server to manage things in enterprise type setting Ithat IT personnel control)
My company (work) says employees can also download and install SEP on their home computers to use for security software
but says nothing more, so i'm guessing as you said that it'll be unmanaged method/installation

if that is the case (SEP installed unmanaged) is it much weaker than other home AV software?
Or even if its unmanaged, its still better than other home AV software?

Home AV software (to compare to): Bitdefender (what I have now), Kaspersky, others (like Avast), etc ?
I also have ZAL installed, will probably try Voodoo Shield next some time

ransomware protection is i think most important to me, after that comes typical virus/malware protection (behavior, cloud, definition, etc)

do you know which features of SEP become weaker or stop working maybe if SEP installation is unmanaged?

If you use the company licensed SEP, you will have the choice, but if you decide to use it managed, the admin should tailored the policy to your needs.

no, it means with unmanaged you will lack the most important feature (application and device control), but SEP unmanaged is still better than other home user suites. In fact, if i had to use a suite it would be SEP only.
